Detectives from Charleston County traveled to Easley on Saturday to search for a missing mother from their area who has not been seen since March.

Gayle McCaffrey, 36, was reported missing by her husband Robert McCaffrey on March 18 after he told deputies he last saw her at their West Ashley home about 10 p.m. on March 17, deputies said. That was about the time he left their home to drive to the Upstate, according to investigators.

Deputies said Robert McCaffrey was pulled over about 2 a.m. by Travelers Rest police for speeding, before returning to Charleston a few hours later.

Deputies said began searching about 8 a.m. on Saturday along Freeman Bridge Road along with people from the CUE Center. They searched 200 acres of private property in connection with the case. Deputies said the area had been under consideration, and when the opportunity to work the CUE Center arose they decided to search the area and eliminate it from their investigation if needed.
